NHL Daily Updates: Checking in on the Blues, Bruins, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
January 21, 2014
After a pretty active seven-game schedule yesterday, the NHL will be kicking it into high gear today with 10 matchups out there. Before we take a seat on the couch and wait for those pucks to drop, let’s take a closer look at some of the noteworthy players out there and see what everyone’s up to this morning. Here’s the latest.
Brad Marchand, LW, Boston Bruins: After struggling offensively for part of the season, Marchand has got his mojo back. He posted two more goals yesterday against the Kings, helping his team to a 3-2 victory. That gives Marchand a three-game scoring streak, and on the year he has 16 goals and 12 assists to his credit.
The Bruins will get a few days off before their next game. They’ll finish off the week on Saturday against the Flyers in Philly.

Drew Shore, C, Florida Panthers: The Penguins had a nice home winning streak coming into this one, but the Panthers got rid of that in a hurry. Shore accounted for two goals in the 5-1 rout; All three of his goals this season have come in the last four games. Also pitching in was Jesse Winchester, who notched three assists.
The Panthers will finish off their road trip tonight in Buffalo, then they’ll go home and get ready for the Avalanche on Friday.
Alexander Steen, LW, St. Louis Blues: Steen didn’t find the net last night against Detroit, but he was able to notch a pair of assists in what was eventually a 4-1 win. That gives Steen 16 helpers to go along with his 24 scores. It was just his second game back from injury.
The Blues’ road trip continues through this week. They’re in New Jersey tonight, then face the Rangers (Thursday) and Islanders (Saturday).
Roman Josi, D, Nashville Predators: Josi was the big hero for the Predators last night, keeping his productive streak alive. He notched a goal and an assist in the 4-1 win over Dallas, which gives him three scores and five helpers over his last 10 games. Patric Hornqvist also helped out with an assist.
The Preds will be back in action Thursday in Vancouver, then they’ll finish off their week in Calgary on Friday.
